Gentleman Jack Gallagher def. Lince Dorado
Gallagher and Drew Gulak are on a mission to recruit Humberto Carrillo into their alliance, so I guess Gallagher was looking to impress Carrillo by beating Dorado. This match received more time than I expected and was very fun. Gallagher hasn't been showcased in singles competition in a great while, so this felt refreshing. It was also the right call to have him go over.
Tony Nese def. Noam Dar in a No Disqualification Match
I've been a fan of how this feud has been built up like a blood feud with the two recently brawling in a parking lot. It was way more than your typical rubber match and they benefited from having no disqualifications. Unsurprisingly, the crowd was dead early on, but to their credit, they did a great job of getting the fans invested in the action. They didn't go too over the top, but it was also extreme enough to warrant the stipulation. Both guys put forth an exceptional effort and the finish looked fantastic.
After the main event, Buddy Murphy and Akira Tozawa signed the contract for their WWE Cruiserweight Championship match at Elimination Chamber with Drake Maverick serving as the moderator backstage. It was a fairly simple segment (Tozawa actually alluded to his 2017 win over Neville at the end), so I didn't bother writing an entire paragraph about it. The rest of the show was super solid between the enjoyable opener and the excellent No Disqualification main event. This episode definitely felt more must-see than most installments from the last few weeks.
